Evandro Delgado’s goal just after the hour mark handed Potters Bar Town all three points from their trip to Godalming Town on Saturday.
The G’s had gone into the clash unbeaten after four league games, however The Scholars were to end that record.
Arriving late due to traffic on the M25, Bar struggled to find their rhythm with Godalming having the majority of the first half play without really testing keeper Mike Underwood.
Louis Hutton, Adam Cornell and Jack Mazzone all created opportunities for themselves, but could only shoot tamely at the keeper or put the ball wide.
Good work from Dan Odamo and Connor Sullivan in the Scholars defence prevented chances for the lively Darren Wheeler and Mazzone.
The best chance of the half fell to Godalming’s Cornell who found himself with a free header in the box, but put it wide.
As the Scholars came into the game Jack Lyons teed up Charlie Nelson who pulled his shot wide while on the stroke of half-time Delgado also failed to hit the target.
Bar started the second half on the attack with Lyons and Joe Bennett causing problems for the home defence with crosses being cleared by the impressive Lee Rushe at centre back.
The pressure told as Delgado took advantage of a mistake in the heart of Godalming’s defence to slot home for his second of the week.
Moments later a Nelson throw-in was cleared out to Chris Doyle with a flashing drive that was just tipped over the bar by Richard Ossei in the Godalming goal.
The Scholars held out for the win and next up is a visit to London Colney on Saturday in the FA Cup preliminary round.
